I am the ultimate SUCKER for pie and crumbles – actually all things that involve stewed fruits and pastry! This recipe is refined sugar and dairy free – I use oats so Its not 100% advisable for gluten intolerant people. Feel free to omit the oats and use buckwheat flour if you are gluten intolerant.


Apple Crumble
Author: Ema Taylor
  • 3 Green Granny smith apples
  • 2 Pink lady apples
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of spelt flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbl spoon vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  1. Turn oven onto 170 Degrees
  2. Chop each apple into 12 pieces and layer in a medium sized baking dish
  3. In a large bowl add your dry ingredients – oats, flour, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg
  4. In another bowl stir together your wet ingredients – coconut oil, agave and vanilla essence (you may have to melt the coconut oil first)
  5. Stir wet ingredients into dry
  6. Crumble the topping over the apples until it is evenly spread
  7. Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes or until the apples are soft and juicing
  8. Take the foil off for the last 10 minutes in order to brown the top slightly.

This doubles as a great breakfast option – I even top my pancakes with it the next day – see pancake recipe on the next page.
